As everyone is aware that Maharashtra government has issued 15-day lockdown and shooting of film and shows have been halted. While a few shows have shifted their locations to Goa, Hyderabad, Surat and other places, many are still depending on bank of episodes and thinking of airing reruns. The makers are hoping that the government eases restrictions and allows them to shoot in the state.
